As we have said several times before, we have only been learning how to make money blogging for a year now. This site specifically, We Get Scammed For You, hasn’t been around for more than 4 months, and already we’ve seen quite a bit of success.
Many people ask the question, Is affiliate marketing for 2019? Or is it no longer a way to make money online? We’re here to tell you the straight facts, and not beat around the bush with an answer.
Of course you can make money with Affiliate marketing, and it is still relevant for today’s day and age. We would even argue that it is more relevant than previous years!
As you continue to read this article, we’ll give you several reason why we still believe affiliate marketing is for 2019, as well as our success with our own website, We Get Scammed For You.
What Is Affiliate Marketing?
Affiliate marketing, at its very core, is just that you simply promote things that you enjoy, and making money from those promotions. That’s literally what it is, and how easy it can be.
Most people do this through the form of a website or blog, while others will do video marketing (known as vlogging), or even in the form of podcasting.
Basically, there are programs out there where, if you sign up and get accepted, you can promote things in that certain program, and receive a commission (usually between 3-10%) if someone bought something through what you promoted.
For example, if you were into Legos, and wanted to share you enthusiasm with others, you could sign up to their program (called an affiliate program), and promote all things Lego.
And here’s the great thing. You don’t need a brick and mortar shop, nor do you have to buy a bunch of products, and then sell them. The program you are a part of will take care of all that!
On top of that, because you are online, you have nearly the whole world as possibly being customers, and people who will go through your links to purchase stuff! And those getting onto the internet is growing more and more each day!
So is affiliate marketing for 2019? Absolutely!
There are more people online than there have been in the history of the internet, with millions of new people getting online every year. And you could just be the next person to tap into all those new customers, and make money from them.
We’ve Been Successful, And Here’s The Proof!
We’re not going to claim that making money online is easy – in fact, with this site, we haven’t made much money. But that doesn’t mean that we haven’t been successful, nor that we won’t be in the future.
We’re quite certain that within a few months we’ll be making more money than we’ve imagined. Affiliate marketing takes time, determination, and ultimately, the energy to see it through.
So, just how successful have we been with affiliate marketing?
Ranking Within Google Search Results
What’s great about affiliate marketing is that you can do nearly everything for free, and that includes getting people to your site.
You don’t need to pay people to come to your site, or place ads all over the internet in the hopes to get people to click onto your blog. There are much cheaper ways than that.
Did you know that people search for phrases and keywords on search engines (like Google, Bing, or DuckDuckGo)? And if you rank within in the first page of the search results, you’ll be able to get people to come directly to your site!
Below is a screenshot of one of the many examples of our success with ranking within Google:
In a recent article that we published (just yesterday), we came to find that we were on the first page of Google for that article. Not only that, but we were in the first position as well!
You’ll notice that Google actually ranked us in position one within 4 minutes of publishing our article. Now, granted, it took some time for us to be liked by Google, and it doesn’t happen with all our articles, but it definitely is a success for most people.
Receiving Traffic From Google Search Results
About a month ago, we seemed to have an explosion of traffic to our site from people searching on Google:
As you can see from the graph above, our site seems to be getting over 100 people per day, just from Google search results. And this is only month 4 of our existence! Give us another 4 months and our hope is to be over 500 people daily, from search results alone.
Now, being a successful affiliate marketer, we don’t only rely on Google to get traffic to our site. There are many other ways.
Success With Other Traffic Sources
As you can see above, that is all the traffic that we’ve had for this currently year of 2019! We’re currently averaging around 400+ page views per day, and can’t wait to see it go up!
Our traffic is coming from all over the place, like Twitter, YouTube, Quora, and even other search engines, like Bing and Yahoo.
Speaking of Quora, we have had quite a bit of success from getting traffic from them to your site. We were so successful, that we actually were named on of the most viewed writers for the subject of fraud!
Is Affiliate Marketing Still Successful?
Hopefully by now, you’re not thinking that affiliate marketing isn’t successful, and that you can actually do quite a bit within a relatively short amount of time.
Have we been successful with making money? Of course not, but then again, it’s only been 4 months. Ask us that in another 4, and we’re certain we’ll have a much more positive answer. Ask us in another 12 months, and our hope is that this site will be more successful than we can image.
Our success doesn’t end here. We will keep writing and achieving great things with our site, and hope that you’ll stick around with us to watch it bloom.
Not only that, but our success doesn’t end with ourselves. We’re not here to keep all of our secrets to ourselves, nor take all of the success.
